If there's only one page which isn't updated often, it's easier to do what you
suggest. If there are several pages or the content changes, it's better to use
CSS media types to style/format printer output. That avoids separate printer-
friendly page altogether.
IIRC Netscape 4 doesn't understand media="print" at all, so if you want to
support NS4 users then you have to add separate page. Forget forcing Arial
as well, that way user can print the page with their prefered font face and size.
